Approval for abusive and misleading Church Society report from FIEC National Director John Stevens and ReNew Chair Rev William Taylor’s right hand man

The Church Society report by Lee Gatiss about the Andreyevs is misleading, inaccurate, defamatory, and a gross abuse of power by senior Christian leaders. Extensive written evidence of this can be found on this website. However, the publication of the Church Society report calls into question not only the integrity of Lee Gatiss and ChurchContinue reading “Approval for abusive and misleading Church Society report from FIEC National Director John Stevens and ReNew Chair Rev William Taylor’s right hand man”

Dodgy data and fiddled figures in the Church Society report by Lee Gatiss

In the document written about my husband and me by Lee Gatiss for Church Society, the (now resigned) Churchwardens ‘report’ that during my husband’s time as vicar here, the electoral roll and church attendance shrank massively. However, the electoral roll and attendance figures quoted in the Church Society report are highly misleading. As Lee GatissContinue reading “Dodgy data and fiddled figures in the Church Society report by Lee Gatiss”

Fabricated ‘facts’ in the Lee Gatiss Church Society report

Both Church Society’s ‘full’ report about my husband and I and the ‘Executive Summary’ contain the false accusation of my husband’s supposed ‘inability to work with people’. This accusation comes from a letter written about my husband ‘to the Bishop of Derby (copying in the Archdeacon of Derby, the Bishop of Maidstone, and the DirectorContinue reading “Fabricated ‘facts’ in the Lee Gatiss Church Society report”

Money, money, money

In August 2021, after I had spent almost three years trying to get Bishop Rod Thomas and Church Society senior leaders to address their abusive behaviour towards me, Church Society declined to engage with me or apologise, but instead published a report about me and my husband. The report was a thinly veiled attack onContinue reading “Money, money, money”

Why did the Church of England ask us to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA)?

The Archbishop of Canterbury confirmed recently that the Church of England would not use Non Disclosure Agreements, but they seem alive and well in the form of Confidentiality Clauses. In January 2021, my vicar husband was asked by the Bishop of Derby to sign a NDA after being bullied out of St Peter’s Stapenhill byContinue reading “Why did the Church of England ask us to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA)?”

More voices of the congregation (that were ignored and silenced by Church Society, Derby Diocese and the Bishop of Maidstone)

Why were these voices of the congregation excluded from the August Church Society report by Lee Gatiss about the Andreyevs? Lee Gatiss and other Church Society leaders were aware that these voices existed, but chose to smother them in favour of voices that better suited the Church Society narrative. Surely this deliberate omission raises questionsContinue reading “More voices of the congregation (that were ignored and silenced by Church Society, Derby Diocese and the Bishop of Maidstone)”

Why wasn’t this included in Lee Gatiss’s report for Church Society? (Statement of support for the Andreyevs from the bishops)

The document below was written just before the Andreyevs went on pastoral leave to give them some respite from the group bullying them in church. It was written and signed by the former Bishop of Derby, Alastair Redfern, and the Bishop of Maidstone, Rod Thomas. Rod Thomas is also the President of Church Society –Continue reading “Why wasn’t this included in Lee Gatiss’s report for Church Society? (Statement of support for the Andreyevs from the bishops)”
